Tribal Group announces the departure of Nick Stanley, Managing Director, APAC - Nick to pursue his entrepreneurial ambitions while remaining a Tribal advisor

Last updated: 10/11/2017

After seeing through the integration of Tribal Campus into the wider business and then leading the consolidation of the Tribal Group APAC business, Nick Stanley will be  departing as Tribal Group’s Managing Director, APAC.  Nick is leaving  to pursue his personal entrepreneurial ambitions.


Nick will remain with Tribal to assist with the transition plans and will remain a close friend of the business, as both a shareholder and advisor. Nick will be joining a newly formed advisory board to support Tribal to significantly grow its APAC business.


Nick is an advocate for business growth in Geelong and Tribal remains committed to growing its presence in the area. Tribal’s plans to continue its strong growth in Australia and the surrounding regions are undiminished, and will appoint  a successor to Nick who can bring similar levels of drive and enthusiasm to these plans.


Tribal’s Chief Executive, Ian Bowles said;

“Nick has done tremendous work for us in region and indeed, across the world with contracts such as the British Council. As the co-founder of Tribal Campus he has helped shape our movement towards cloud-based systems and will leave us with a healthy business in APAC. We are also delighted that Nick has agreed to stay on as a shareholder and, more significantly, a close advisor for the team. We will look forward to continuing  to work with Nick and wish him the very best in his endeavours outside of Tribal. Our hunt for a successor has already commenced and I am confident with Nick’s continued support, that we will find the right candidate and will execute a smooth transition.” 


Nick Stanley commented;

“I’ve really enjoyed my time working with Tribal.  The business is in a tremendous position in a growth market and is well on the way to being the global leader in empowering education providers.  I will reflect on this time and the contribution I have made as a career highlight.  However, the strong close to 2016 coupled with positive early momentum in 2017 gives me confidence that the time is now right to hand over the reins to the right candidate so I can pursue other business endeavours.  I also want to thank Ian for asking me to remain an advisor to Tribal and look forward to continuing a positive working relationship with everyone in the Tribal team.”

Nick is expected to stay with Tribal through to the end of April while transition planning and recruitment for his successor takes place.
